    anyway if anyone knows of any spots that have a bunch let me know.

    Thanks

    when they are green and blueish colored, are they called youthberries?

    Will you be at the Eustis event? Are you willing to let us sample your jam? I've never had elderberry jam and you have me intrigued...

    I'm not sure if I'm thinking of the right berries. I was in a bunch of them near the Heads of a fiddle cache. They were still very green so I'm not sure which kind they are. Never picked them just had people tell me what they were and not to eat them when I would point them out on the trails.

    if you go to bing.com and tell it you want pictures of elderberries they have some good ones both wild and cultivated. Yes they are green when not ripe but there are other berries that look similar too. Wouldnt surprise me if they were at that site tho. They grow wild all over...or they used to but around here they are getting quite scarce....i cant wait to hear back from Vicbiker about this place in abbot....and wish i was planning a trip to PA for all those that gobbler got!! It takes quite a few to make a quart as the berries are really quite small.

    Wish I could remember to look this stuff up. I come from the days before computers where the library was the place to go, or the crazy bum that lived in the bushes outside the creepy old house.

    Yes those are the berries I saw but they were all green so I can't tell you if they are the poison ones yet. I say give them a try and see what happens.

    I am reading bad things about Splenda.

    I look at it the way I was taught at the Joslin Clinic in Boston, moderation. Eat the good stuff and enjoy it. Don't over do it and make adjustments in diet, exercise and insulin.
